I am an occupational therapist in NYC. In 2016 I completed my Master's degree at Columbia University Programs in Occupational Therapy. That September, I began working towards a research doctorate at Teachers College at Columbia Univerisity. I love this work dearly, and am throwing myself enthusiastically into this new career.

With the Itty Biddies I have worked as a Teaching Artist with The Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall's Musical Connections program - part of the community outreach arm of Carnegie Hall - for over 10 years. Via Musical connections, I have taught songwriting and performance to people all across the five boroughs - in hospitals, shelters, and to those who are incarcerated.

In addition to my work with Carnegie Hall, I was an arts consultant for AHRC NYC from 2012-2014 - teaching songwriting and singing to some wonderful developmentally disabled adults. Those songs are some of my favorites!
